When there is a talk about oozing cute romance scenes then only rom-com Korean dramas come in my mind. That is actually one of the reasons why I like Korean dramas so much. My drama journey has been decorated with such beautiful Kdramas which were full of cute romance scenes. Unexpected back hugs, first kisses, unexpected love and those caring moments by the male lead in a drama for their girlfriend is exactly why you must see these 10 Korean dramas once in your life. These are purely my recommendations, so let’s start. ❤
1. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo

Kim Bok-joo’s childhood friend Jung Joon-hyung falls in love with her as she is.
CAST– Lee Sung Kyung And Nam Joo Hyuk
CUTENESS LEVEL– 8.5/ 10
This drama is the cutest drama I have ever seen. Love between two high school students who have been childhood friend is so cute that it makes you jealous of them. Both of them are each other’s first love and it almost feels like a baby love. Jung Joon-hyung becomes a very caring and loving boyfriend to Kim Bok Joo after she breaks her heart because of her crush.
2. My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho

So they strike a deal: she’ll lend him her mystical fox bead so that with his increased speed and strength, he’ll be able to do difficult stunts for his movie, and in exchange he’ll help her become human. Through this process they both falls in love without knowing that one of them will die in 100 days. Dae-woong will die if Mi-ho becomes fully human, but Mi-ho will die if the bead isn’t returned.
CAST- Lee Seung Gi And Shin Min Ah
CUTENESS LEVEL– 9/10
The drama is very romantic, with couple moments so sweet and lovely that you would have butterflies in your stomach. Also the drama will take you to the emotional roller coaster, just like every Kdrama does. I gave it more points as I was able to attach emotionally with the drama which was an amazing experience. Even today if I hear about the drama anywhere I can still feel the cuteness of the two. ❤
3. The Heirs

Despite being engaged to Yoo Rachel (Kim Ji-won), a fellow heiress, Kim Tan soon falls in love with Eun-sang. – Wikipedia
CAST- Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye
CUTENESS LEVEL– 7.5/10
Again a high school drama and first love between a rich boy and a poor girl. The drama becomes super cute when Kim Tan keep teasing Cha Eun Sang, like sometimes untying her hair from back or hugging her while covering his jacket all over her. All these scenes have been especially put in this drama to make it cute. I gave it less points as many times it was more on the melodrama side.
4. Shopping King Louie

CUTENESS LEVEL– 9/10
Louis was such a cutie in this drama. Louis character was almost like a baby one who has forgotten all his past and still he cannot do most of his things by himself as he only did shopping in his past life. But Bok-Shil took care of him during this time and their chemistry was so cute that it was hard to handle. 🙂 ❤
5. High Kick 3

CAST- Ahn Nae-sang, Yoon Yoo-sun, Yoon Kye-sang, Lee Jong-suk, Krystal Jung, Kim Ji-won, Park Ha-sun, Baek Jin-hee and Julien Kang
CUTENESS LEVEL– 10/10
It is actually a family sitcom comedy drama. But there was one couple that I absolutely adored from heart, Yoon Ji-seok and Park Ha Sun. Their love story was cute from the beginning to the end. In the starting of the drama the two didn’t get to connect with each other well and only remained friends. But Yoon Ji Seok had a secret crush on Park Ha Sun and he kept doing cute things for her without her knowing. (spoiler) Even later when they began their relationship Yoon Ji Seok proved to be the cutest boyfriend for Park Ha Sun who loved her a lot. Its a 10 on 10 for me as I found both of them very lovely and cute together plus their cute characters were an icing on the cake.
6. Touch Your Heart

The two end up in a secret romance.

It was such a cute and sweet drama with many romantic kisses and the cutest thing about this drama was the height difference between the main leads.
